Is there any way to get in contact with the rights holder? I am interested in using this for a short film for a festival and I am not litigious enough to understand if the creative commons allows me to do so, since film festivals are technically comercial. Please respond or email me directly at email@example.com. Thanks.

Exceptionally good quality recording
The dynamic range of the recording is astounding for a 78rpm recording. A good interpretation makes this, along with the Otto Klemperer recording also available at the Internet Archive, "must-downloads." You will not be disappointed.

This recording was great considering when it was made.

Weingartner good at Beethoven. Only recording with soloists and choir good enough to pull off last mvt. Not my favorite Beethoven symphony. Recording is softer but sounds about as good as mine.

RE: Set Number
The set I transcribed is evidently of Asian origin (see graphic of first disc), and the number on the spine of this album is 203.
Thanks for your interest.

look for the Klemperer
This is a good version, but sound quality is not particularly good.
In the sound archives, I would check out the Klemperer recording. Much livelier and much better recording http://www.archive.org/details/beethoven9
